Description :
Pale color. Lemon, lime, mint, clove and crushed stone on the nose. Rich and pliant but at the same time juicy and powerful; this really resounds in the mouth and grips the palate on the aftertaste. Already showing some personality but needs bottle aging to expand

Domaine Niellon Michel

Domaine Michel Niellon   Allen Meadows’s Burgendy reference :

"Michel Niellon describes the 2007 vintage as one where “it had all the hallmarks of an early, and thus very ripe, vintage that turned out to be early yet anything but really ripe. To be sure, the grapes weren’t under ripe but usually when you’re harvesting very early, it’s because the weather has been very hot.

Other than essentially having July arrive in April, the rest of the time the weather was cool, gray and wet, save for the last two weeks of August and the first half of September.

We picked relatively early, which is to say at the beginning of September and brought in normal yields with sugars that ran between 12 and 13% and firm if not aggressive acidities. The wines domaine Niellon are classic and remind me quite a bit of the 2004s. I personally prefer the 2006s as I like rather ripe wines but those who prefer classically styled wines will probably prefer the ‘07s.”

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 94 points
"The 2015 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is a valedictory wine as the 90-year-old vines were pulled up after the fruit was picked (see producer introduction). You know, it actually surpasses the Chevalier-Montrachet in terms of mineralité and complexity, very refined with hints of orange blossom developing with time. The palate is very well balanced with a keen line of acidity, good tension and particular fine salinity here that urges you back for another sip. There is just a barrel and a half of this Bâtard-Montrachet so grab one now because it will not reappear for a long time."

Stephen Tanzer : 93 points

" Pale yellow with green reflections. Captivating floral perfume to the aromas of white peach and noble herbs. The palate conveys an almost glyceral thickness in the style of the year but its savory umami character gives it finesse and notes of herbs and flowers provide lift. Seems much less exotic in bottle than it was in barrel last year but still in a rather powerful style. This plush, fat, nicely balanced Bâtard finishes with lovely aromatic freshness."
